Information in pension records contributed by Debbie Ferdetta:

There was a first wife who died 9 Feb 1880.  The first wife had been previously married.  Her name at the time she married Carmichael was Mary Ann SUTCH.  She had a son William SUTCH who was married to Ada.  Ada testified about the death of Carmichael's first wife.  She said Mary Ann died in the fall of 1882 at Shelby OH and was buried at Shelby Cemetery.  

2 May 1900 the soldier was living in Mansfield, Richland Co OH.  The soldier was still having pains on his left side, extending over his heart and disturbing his heart greatly as the result of being wounded on his left side.  

Pension for Increase..children under age 16:  22 Nov 1906, Mary Carmichael, resident Mansfield, age 18.  Soldier died cardiac ?asthenia at Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Home, 17 June 1900.  Mother Flora died 15 Mar 1892.   William and Flora Winget married 2 Oct 1887.  Mary was born 7 Oct 1888.  Incurred in service: injury to breast, back and right leg, broken ribs on left side.  "Injury hurts me all the time." Injury to breast was caused by G. shot wound across sternum. Injury to back and right leg was caused by a fall.  Broken ribs was caused by a gunshot wound.  Gunshot wounds cause general debility.  Suffers cramps in limbs.  There is a scar four inches long and one-third inch wide extending from left side of sternum. Broken 3rd and 4th ribs.  Residence Crestline O.  
Wife Flora had a brother named John W. Winget, of Mansfield in 1907.  

 Prisoner of War Records show him captured at Snaggy Point LA May 3 '64.  Paroled at Mouth Red River LA, May 27, 1865.  Reported at Benton Barracks MO June 1865 and sent to Camp Chase OH June 1865 where he reported 20 June 1865 and was mustered out...

He injured his back and right leg when mules fell on him near Vicksburg MS in May 1863.  

His service in Co B, 88th OH Vol Inf was from 2 June 1862 to 26 Sept 1862.  

Story of the mules:  "in the line of duty near Vicksburg in the State of Miss, on or about the month of May 1863, he while employed as teamster and while riding the saddle mule in trying to cross a bridge, the line hours of his team wheeled close to a ditch and the wagon upset causing the wheel mules to fall on him, crushing in his breast and breaking some ribs on the left side, also injuring his back directly above the hips and also his right leg.  Claims pension for these injuries.  Received treatment from his Regimental Surgeon."  The applicant had resided in Webster, Monroe, Jackson, and Shelby OH.  He was a farmer.  William stated in another paper that he was driving the team at Smiths Plantation in Louisiana when this happened.  He also stated that at the time of the injury he was not able to walk for four months.  [0400]  In another paper, the incident with the mules occurred between the 15th and 20th of May 1863.  

[ 30 Oct 1891] It was at Snaggy Point that he was wounded in the left side.  The "missile" entered at the lower ribs and passed down into his groin where it lodged and remained.  His left side as a result was weak and pained him while performing manual labor.  [0403]

Charles WEANT of Co H wrote a letter verifying the mule incident - reworded:  Butler Po [post office] 6 Dec 1889.  Near Vicksburg Miss as near as I can mind between the 15th and 20th of May 1863 while employed as teamster I was driving the team right ahead of Wm Carmickel and when I drove across the bridge his line mule swung on him and upset his wagon and turned his wheel mules over in the ditch and when I ran back to him he was lying with his leg under the saddle mule and the mule turned over struck him in the breast with the saddle and when we pulled him out he could not stand and we laid him down until he came to then helped him in the wagon.  He always complained of his breast and back and leg after that.      On 15 May 1863 Co H was at Black River Rail Road Bridge, Mississippi.  

George A. Flaharty, of Butler, Richland Co OH,  also wrote a letter saying that he, being present at the bridge, knew Carmichael was hurt very badly and he helped get the mule team off of him.  

Sarah HANNAN?, mother of Flora Carmichael, wrote that Flora had not been married before marrying Carmichael.  Mary was Flora's daughter.  Flora died Mar 1892 at Crestline OH and was buried at Crestline.

Information from the National Archives sent by Debbie Ferdetta:

17 Apr 1891, Coshocton Co OH, Martin Cochran was age 69, resident of Coshocton.

 27 Apr 1896, National Military Home, Montgomery Co OH.  

Soldier enrolled in service at Shelby OH.  

 Alexander E. DAVIDSON, age 66, and Solomaon S. SMITH, age 62, of Kansas city, Jackson Co MO, testified that they had known Martin Cockran for 18 yrs and from boyhood respectively, and that ever since the war he has not been able to do manual labor.  Before the war he was a "stout hard working man."

 22 Dec 1882 James D. Robison, M.D. [late surgeon of volunteers], Wooster, Wayne Co OH:  "I have been practising medicine for thirty nine years.  I was called to see Martin Cochran professionally on Dec 2 1863.  I have no recolection of having known the patient before that time.  I found him quite sick with chronic diarrhoea, confined to his bed and unable to visit me as I would have preferred having him do, as he lived twelve miles from Wooster and it was in the winter.  I visited him again on Dec 9 and on Dec 15 and on Dec 20 and on Dec 27 1863, and January 3 1864.  When I found him so much better that I turned him over to the professional care of  Dr. John Cowan of Jeromesville, Ashland Co Ohio as he resided much nearer the patient.  The soldier was then home on sick furlough.  And was during the time of my treament totally disabled from performing manual labor."

J. Cowan, M.D, 11 July 1882.: "I treated the above named soldier while at Home on Furlough.  I first visited him January 16 1864.  Visited twice several times between that and 10th March 1864 when I reported him to his Regiment or Hospital as being unable to report in person.  During all this time he was unable to perform labor of any kind and part of the time was confined to bed.  His general condition was bad.  Diarrhea with general tenderness over the stomach and bowels, emaciation etc.  He was what we at that time called chronic camp diarrhea with low fever.  As to giving a precise description of his condition I cannot as this is from memory.  The dates are from my book kept at the time.

Soldier was in Coshocton at least from 1849 to 1854.  Then again in Oct 1884 he was back in that area.  He was seeing Dr. James G. Carr during those time periods.  

There is a letter from Elizabeth Ann Cochran MAGAW [Mrs. John G. Magaw, 425 Surf St, Chicago, IL] included in the pension papers.  She wrote the letter 25 May 1929 asking for family information.  It seems that Martin had a brother named Joshua who was in Co F 80th OH Vol Inf.  He was killed in action at Corinth, MS on 4 Oct 1862.  Joshua's place of birth was Jefferson Co OH, age 42, farmer.  His father was Joshua COCKRAN and his mother was Betsy COX [a near relative of General Cox of the War of 1812].  She said that Martin was honorably discharged 10 June 1865 at New Orleans LA. Martin was born at Coshocton Co OH.  She stated that her father, George W. COCHRAN, was a much younger brother of Joshua and Martin.  George was born in Coshocton Co OH and was also in the Civil War and drew a pension at Toronto IA and then at Chicago and then died at the National Soldiers Home in Milwaukee WI.

This was the answer to that letter:
National Archives letter to Mrs. John G. Magaw, 425 Surf St, Chicago, IL; 19 July 1929
In response to your letter requesting information relative to the family of the above entitled soldier [Martin Cochran], I have to advise you that in a statement on file the soldier gave his first wife's name as Lovina Bingard, married at East Union, Coshocton County, Ohio; second wife, Frances A. Young, also of Ohio; and it appears from evidence on file that he was again married to Mary J. Stover, from whom he separated.
  A report from the National Military Home of Ohio, furnished at the time of the soldier's death, November 21, 1904, shows that on entering the Home he gave as  next of kin the name of Mrs. Mary Bell, of Keene [Coshocton county], Ohio, sister; and at the date of his death a nephew, Martin V. Spang, of 611 Denmead Avenue, Columbus, Ohio, was the person notified.  
  There is nothing further on file relative to this family.
Very truly yours,
Earl D. Church, Commissioner

Mrs. Johnson M. Dewitt,
Madam
In conformity with my duty although it is a painful task, I write to apprise you of the death of your Husband who died the 2nd inst of measles or rather the results of that fatal disease to all who may have the misfortune to contract it in the army.
   Although a painful thing my dear Madam it is the fortune of war and the fate of many who have gone forth in this struggle for right.  I most sincerely condole with you on the loss of that best and dearest friend on earth a Husband & pray God that your Fatherless Babes may not suffer as extremely as I know you must in the loss of their dear dead Father.  But he who ?tempers the wind to the shorn lamb will care for the Fatherless and the widows.  In the death of Johnson we have lost a good and faithful soldier and companion & all deeply deplore his loss.  We performed the last rites to the deceased as well as was possible under the circumstances & gave him what thousands fail to get a 'Christian burial'  I might add great deal more but think my dear Madam that the news of your loss is enough in itself to harrow your feelings to the utmost extent.  I will conclude by saying that the only relics that remain is a dagguereotype of yourself and your husband which I will send to Millersburg in care of "J. S. Nelson" Shff[Sheriff] when you can get it.  In regard for the pay and bounty for services of Johnson, you can draw it through the war department by your attorney at any time after the final statements are made out here.

According to the obituary, Salathiel moved to California in 1874.  It looks like his son lived with his first wife's parents. But I can't find Salathiel in 1880.

This same family appears to be in Santa Barbara in 1880.

J FAST, adopted son, age 8 IA.  [Note:  See obituary below showing that Salathiel had a son named Justus C FAST.]

Justus C FAST was still living in Santa Barbara CA in 1910 [page 42].  It shows that his father was born in OH and his mother in WV.  He is 38 yrs old and is married with a son named Norval C.    So it looks like Maggie HILL was Salathiel's first wife and the mother of Justus.

But where was Salathiel in 1880?  

About 1888 Salathiel married his second wife.

Santa Barbara Genweb:  Salathiel FAST, lists birth as 8 May 1851. The 8 May could be correct, but the 1851 is not.  Died 28 Apr 1923 in Santa Barbara.  Burial in Santa Barbara Cemetery, Mountain View section, Lot 120, Quadrant NW 1/4.  Maria is listed as Maria Annette Lofthouse FAST, born 14 Feb 1862, died 12 Apr 1938 in Los Angeles CA.  She is buried at the same lot as Salathiel. 

There was an obituary published in the The Morning Press, April 29, 1923 on page 10.  Salathiel FAST died 28 April 1923.  It indicated that he was living at 208 Anacapa street in Santa Barbara when he died.  He was 82 yrs old.  He had been in the loan and real estate business. He was born 8 May 1840 in Ohio and went to California in 1874.  He served in Company K of the 120th Ohio infantry.  Survivors were wife Mrs. Maria A. L. FAST, son Justus C FAST of Goleta, grandson Norval C FAST at University of Nevada, and granddaughter Marion FAST.  He was buried at Santa Barbara cemetery.

From Debbie Ferdetta, National Archives Pension papers:
Marriage of Cyrus GURWELL and Margaret Jane SKELLY, 21 Sep 1854, Holmes Co OH.  This evidence was sent directly from Holmes co OH Probate Court dated 9 April 1900.  

[0902] Gurwell entered the National Military Home at Leavenworth Co KS, 17 Feb 1892.  
[0827] Dated 6 Nov 1899, Soldier living at Wellsville, Montgomery, MO, age 69:  "I have not been an inmate of the National Military home at Leavenworth Kansas since April 14th last [1899]....."My wife the claimant Margaret J. Gurwell scolded and fussed so much at home that it was impossible for me to live with her, and we have been separated ever since the fall of 1890, but I have never applied for divorce because with my experience I did not want another wife and not wishing to marry did not need a a divorce.  She left me and moved to town, she said because I would not accept her religion.  I did not leave her nor drive her off."  
[0829] Dated 18 Dec 1899, John H. Smith, Henry Whitehead, and James H Whitehead testified for Cyrus.  They were all of Wellsville, Montgomery MO:  "In about September 1885 Cyrus Gurwell had a quarrel with his son Frank, after which Frank and his mother had Mr. Gurwell arrested, and he was find $20,  Thinking this was wrong, myself, J. H. Whitehead and Ben Lewis paid his fine and got him out of jail.  but he said his family made life such a burden that he would not go home again and stayed with me for about a year, and so far as I know has never lived at home since.  I felt that the boy was of age and should leave home instead of the father, and that the family was more to blame than the old man."  [all three agreed to this testimony]
[0831]Dated 6 April 1899, John A. BLACKWELL and Mrs. G. M STAUBE testified that Cyrus had abandoned his wife and was living at the Soldiers Home at Leavenworth.    
[0833] Dated 8 Mar 1890, A. KEMPINSKY, age 61, of Wellsville, Montgomery, MO, testified: "That he has been well and intimately acquainted with Cyrus Gurwell and his wife Margaret J. Gurwell ever since their arrival in Montgomery County Mo. in 18__. I know Mrs. Gurwell is a lady of unblemished reputation and excellent character and has been ever since our first acquaintance.  I know that she is in very needy circumstances though highly  esteemed by her neighbors.  I know that her husband deserted her and has for many years left her to support herself as best she could.  He is of unpleasant overbearing disposition.  I know that he is a member of National Military Home but is staying away on furlough." Kapinsky was wife's attorney
[0836] Dated 2 Aug 1902, Ellen LEWIS, age 46. and Mrs. Mary E JOHNSON, age 51, of Wellsville, Montgomery County Mo. testified: We and each of us are married women and resident housekeepers of Wellsville Mo, and each of us are well and personally acquainted with Mrs. Margaret J. Gurwell and know her to be a worthy good woman. We also know that she is old infirm and in very poor circumstances, that she has been deserted by her husband and in our judgment without any cause except his own moral depravity and failure to recognize or discharge his duty as a husband.  In our judgment Margaret I. sure is entitled to, and ought to have all the pension that is paid on account of Cyrus Gurwell on his service in the late War, for a period of at least 13 years to come and one half the same thereafter.  She needs it and in our judgment ought to have it and if not helped by the Government, or some outside source, she will become a charge to her neighbors and friends."  
[0838]  Dated 30 Nov 1899, Frank Gurwell, age 38, of Wellsville, Montomery Co MO:  "I am the son of Cyrus Gurwell and Margaret J. Gurwell above named and have always lived at home as long as father and mother did.  About fourteen or fifteen years ago, my father began to say he had a notion to leave, and would curse and swear when my mother asked him to buy provisions and became very loud and boisterous.  He became very cross and quarrelsome toward the whole family and in October he left and has never lived at home since.  I have had to support the family ever since with some little help from my younger brother Sam.  About twelve years ago my mother moved to Wellsville where I have supported her ever since.  I do not think my father ever had any good reason to leave his family as my mother was always kind to him as it was possible for a wife to be."
[0842]Dated 5 Dec 1900, Margaret J. GURWELL testified that Cyrus had deserted her on or about October 1887 and "during the 13 yrars of his absence has ony contributed sixteen dollars toward her support."  That she was married at Millersburg OH, 21 Sep 1854....Margaret J. SKELLEY and Cyrus GURWELL.   
[0844] Dated 18 Feb 1907, Cyrus GURWELL at National Military Home in Leavenworth KS: Stated that he was born 5 Apr 1830 at Holmes Co OH.  
[0855] Dated 17 Oct 1905, letter concerning discontinuing the division of the pension because of the death of the wife.  
[0856] wife died about 8 Aug 1905.
[0846] Illnesses of Cyrus: Chronic diarrhea, piles, kidney disease, rheumatism, varicose veings, scurvy ulcers on legs, general debility.
[0849] Death of Cyrus: 7 Jan 1908
[0866] In 1897 Cyrus wrote this letter to his wife.  I have changed the spelling and puncutation,  for easier reading:
Dec 25, 1897
Wife, received your letter.  It found me well and hearty.  I have no malaise toward you.  I seen that I could not live in peace with you and Frank and if Frank would stay away from the saloons it would be more credit to him and work a little more.  I worked hard to get grub for him and the rest to live on .  He ought to make enough for him and you to live on.  This is all for the time.  C G to M J G.  [He added "we have turkey for dinner today.  and "you find $2.00 for Christmas present.]

 Letter supporting Gurwell's wife

[0886] This letter was written in support of Gurwell's wife so that she could get some of his pension money.
[0870-71] Part of the law of March 3, 1899, included "desertion" as a reason to give pension to wives of soldiers.  
[0879]Margaret wrote again to the pension board on 6 July 1899.  
[0873] Wellsville, Mo.  April 23 1900
[To] Hon. H. Clay Evans, Washington D. C.
Dear Sir:
Enclosed you will find Mrs. Margaret Gurwell's marriage certificate.  The lady above mentioned is ill and confined to her bed.  If it was not for the kindness of her neighbors she could not exist - as she has nothing to live on.  If there is any fee coming to me please turn it over to her as she is in need of it.
Yours very respt.
A. KEMPINSKY

Wikipedia says this about the 4th US Cavalry:  "...mid-19th century. It was one of the most effective units of the Army against Indians on the Texas frontier."  "The 4th United States Cavalry Regiment was established as part of the expansion of mounted U.S. Army units in the mid-1850s. It was officially organized on 26 March 1855, at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, as the U.S. 1st Cavalry Regiment.    As the 1st Cavalry Regiment was the fourth oldest mounted regiment in terms of active service, it was redesignated as the 4th United States Cavalry Regiment on 3 August 1861."  Read more at the link given about the 4th being in Texas after the Civil War.

Email from Mary Milne Jamba, 3G Granddaughter of Rebecca HARRIS who was half sister of the soldier David HARRIS.  I have added some notes in brackets:

Mary [in the 1860 census]was the mother to David, but not Rebecca [This is not the Rebecca we see in the 1860 census, but a half sister to the soldier David who was the daughter of David's father and the father's first wife.] . I have searched and searched for a marriage record for Warren Harris and Mary,  but cannot find one. Warren's first wife, Prudence Butler died in June 1842, and by 1850 he was married to Mary and had David. 

Rebecca Harris [the half sister] married five times,at least four of those men were Civil War veterans. Thomas H. Stubbarts (12th Michigan Infantry Company F), Parker S. Truax ( 1 Michigan Engineers and Mechanics Company H), Reason F. Lewis ( 40th Ohio Infantry), and William W. Crawford (6th Missouri Cavalry Company E). 

Rebecca's son, James Butler Taylor served in the 16th Ohio Infantry Company B. Thomas Taylor was Rebecca's first husband, and I don't know what became of him. Thomas Stubbarts abandoned her (she thought he died, but he hadn't, it's a fascinating pension file), Parker Truax and Reason Lewis divorced, and finally widowed by William Crawford. 

Mary and Warren had a son, Russell Bigelow Harris born abt 1855. In the 1880 census he is listed as having brain fever. He died in November 1882. Presumably losing both her son, Russell, and her husband Warren prompted Mary to apply for this widow's pension. I'm not sure what to make of the adopted son, Ulysses. He is referred to as Ulysses Grant Gorrell in Warren Harris' will, Ulysses Kilpatric in the 1870 census (living with the Warren Harris family and his mother Rebecca Kilpatric). His birth was recorded in Richland Township, Holmes County, Ohio 8 November 1868, with no father listed. I don't know if this Rebecca was related to the family in some way or not.

Death:  19 Nov 1881, near Bryan, Williams Co OH

Pension Index:  Samuel KNISLEY, K 120th OH.  Widow, Katie MARTIN, filed in OH in 1891 Feb 3, Application 541688, no Certificate.  [Family Search, Ohio, County Marriages, 1789-1994:  Catherine KINSLEY married David MARTIN 2 Oct 1887 at Williams Co OH. ]      So we know for sure that the Samuel Knisley of the 120th OVI was the soldier married to Katie who remarried a MARTIN.  But we have no evidence that the one from the 175th OVI was the same person.  

It seems to me that if these two soldiers were one in the same, that the pension card would have included both records on one card.  

I don't think this is the same person:  Company A, 175th OH Inf.  This Samuel KNISELY was age 25 when he enlisted in Co A, 175th OH Inf on 1 Sep 1864, for one year service.  Mustered out with company on 27 June 1865.  On Pension card as Samuel K. KNISELY, Pvt, Co A 175 OH Inf, applied for invalid pension 26 June 1882, Application 453165, Certificate 366084.  [There was a Samuel KNICELEY age 23 OH, marrid, laborer, in Ross county OH, 1863 on the Draft Registration Records.]

 The soldier, August MARTIN, "was furloughed for interemittent fever & chronic enteritis contracted in line of duty, and that on the 26th of Jun 1865 soldier was so low with the same diseases that he could live only a few days.  Affidavit of Capt. and claimant that he died 30 June, 1865, of said diseases, at home [Salt Creek, OH]."  Died of enteritis and follicular inflamation of the stomach.  August was officially found not guilty of desertion on 17 July 1865.  Capt.

Purdy, J C, d. 04/05/1863, Plot: F 0 4515, bur. 04/05/1863

From Larry Purdy:   He would have been a 3 or 4 times great uncle.  His birth was Wayne Co. PA.  He was actually born in a village called Purdyville, in Wayne Co PA. The village was submerged when a dam was built at the turn of the 20th century.   I have paperwork somewhere with the dam name/location. The marked graves from the Purdyville cemetery were relocated to higher ground before the flooding.  Reuben was very prominent in Wayne Co., PA. He was their first postmaster, as well as a commissioner.  Reuben stayed in Wayne Co PA.  
From Larry Purdy about the cemetery stone here in Ohio:
I finally made it to Wolf Creek Cemetery.  I found the stone, however it was lying on the ground. It is one of the obelisk type stone that has the writing on two sides. The side that is facing up is for Eliza, wife of J.C. Purdy. I am pretty sure he is on the other side but it was too big for me to move it. I think they purposely laid the stone down before it fell. The base is in pretty bad shape.
